SKA will benefit African partners, but they must be ready
March 26, 2014 Editor 0
The international Square Kilometre Array (SKA) programme will be most advantageous for Africa, South African Science and Technology Minister Derek Hanekom affirmed on Wednesday. Phase 1 of the SKA will be co-hosted by South Africa and Australia, with another eight African countries to host outstations during Phase 2. "This project is going to show major benefits for Africa," he stated. "Not least, it will transform perceptions of Africa." The continent is not usually seen as a location for cutting edge science and technology. With the SKA, this will change.
